What's the best way to assess K-1 students, students with learning disabilities, or students with behavioral issues? Follow
Overview: Many K and 1st-grade students will be able to assess on Literably independently just like other students. The same goes for students who have learning disabilities or struggle with their behavior in the classroom. With that said, sometimes teachers may need to sit with some of your students while they assess on Literably. Below are some things to consider when doing this.
Changing Levels. If you notice that the text is obviously too hard or too easy, you can immediately change the student's Next Assessment level and have them reassess. Just go to your teacher dashboard and change the student's level. If the student is assessing on a computer, have them refresh the page. If they're assessing on an iPad, have them log out and log back in. Then have them restart with the new assessment.
No "Tells/Tolds". If the student struggles with a word, please have them sound it out or skip it. Please do not tell them the word. Tells reduce consistency and increase leveling error.
Comprehension. During the comprehension section, you can read the questions and answer choices out loud to the students, or they can click on the blue speaker icons and the computer will read the questions and answer choices to them.
The Retell. The retell is not scored. The extent to which your students complete the retell is a district, school or teacher decision.
